After yet another court defeat for the Government on mass surveillance, it’s time for them to overhaul the system to put protecting our freedoms & civil liberties at its heart, says Ed Davey MP:
The UK’s surveillance regime has once again been declared unlawful by the courts.
What we need is an overhaul of the system that puts protecting freedoms & civil liberties at its very core.
The Government cannot simply tinker around the edges and hope for a different result.
Liberal Democrats believe we can be safe and secure by ensuring surveillance is targeted and suspicion-led.
What we need is for our police and intelligence services to be given the resources and money they need to do their job, not endless new laws.Leave a comment
